. at the same time, he is enormously concerned about the deficit, about government spending, and about debt. he told me if i ran my business the way the government runs its house, i'd be out of business, and that is what we hear across iowa, city to city, whether they lean right or left, they hate the debt here, and i spoke to this one guy in des moines, bob bradshaw. i think he sums it up pretty well. listen. is it the jobs or is it the deficit? >> both. you know, if we're not bringing it in, we shouldn't spend it. and if it's, you know, tough on us to make it better for our kids, i'm willing to sacrifice now to make it better for our kids. >> so interesting. and also people talk about the quality of the jobs, too, right? so even though the unemployment rate is 5.2%, they're worried about how much debt we have, the deficit. they're also worried that the quality of the jobs that are available aren't maybe what they used to be. >> they are. and they said, look, poppy, it's not just about that 5.2%, it's about the jobs that we're getting that are being created. they're lower paying jobs, the hour
have $16 trillion deficit that is looming over our country. we have to cut something. why not the defense? >> no one has sade that we shouldn't put things on the table to cut on defense. we shouldn't do it in this arbitrary fashion we are doing. >> in the debate the president said sequestration is not going to happen. >> the president signd that into law. i didn't vote for it. governor romney said he wouldn't have supported it but the president signed it into law. there is no way the president can just ignore the law. >> finger pointing aside, there is no doubt the impact here in virginia. >> shipyard basically is nuclear news. this put new you port news on the map. >> everyone around here is affiliated with the shipyard and rely on the shipyard a lot. >> we depend on the shipyard. >> a ticking time bomb that is about to go off in january 2013. how do you explain that to people and keep people calm? >> i'm a glass is half full kind of guy. we will work through this. it is the law of the land. i'm optimistic this will push people into a place where they have to come togethe
paid for that window. so that's commerce. >> it is. you spoke about deficit spending a moment ago. look one of the problems we have in this country right now, one of the reasons why we can't get economic growth going more than about 2% is because of the deficit that we're running. deficits have a negative impact on the economy. so long term that isn't a good measure is. again if it was a good idea to go around and basically destroying property to create economic growth why don't we blow up a few cities and we can have a lot of economic growth? the real issue is is that we need productive commerce over time. not replacement commerce but long-term. we're talking about --. melissa: like how, lance. how can we do that? >> we need productive commerce. in the short term we'll get half a percent bump to gdp. long term it's a different issue. melissa: jeff, what do you think is the short or long term way we get the economy rolling again if it is not a big storm like sandy? >> really where does prosperity come from? not from deinstructing things and building them back up. it comes from getting t
a way to compromise and move forward on resolving the deficit problem. my feeling now is that it's not likely to be that simple. it's more likely to spill over into january. when that happens, we'll have a greater degree of uncertainty, not less. it may take longer to work this out than many people expect. indeed, president obama in an interview last week, mentioned that he thinks there will be a solution, a grand bargain, sometime in the first six months of 2013. six months. that's a long time to get this it problem straightened out. >> yeah, so, i mean, if we do get an agreement in six months, does that mean that the u.s. doesn't go into a recession? >> well, first i want to say the metaphor fiscal cliff is probably the wrong one. you step off a cliff, that's your last step. for many politicians, the real metaphor is it's a slope. they gradually go into these tax increases and spending cuts. they feel they can turn around and walk back up the slope, retroactively reverse the changes. in that circumstance, in that scenario, it creates a lot of uncertainty for businesses and for

trillion in debt and trillion-dollar deficits every year, that's a chill on growth. tax policy has been complete uncertainty on his part, monetary policy you might argue that what chairman bernanke has done, you might argue that has helped growth at the margin or preserved jobs at margin at the risk of inflation. >> in a perfect world what do you think we could have been at? >> normalized i think a normal recovery, maybe if there's truth to what paul krugman talks about, maybe it's not 8% but it's 6%, 7%. you need 200 to 300,000 jobs a month to create the kind of jobs, 12 million jobs that mitt romney is talking about and that's, should be relatively easily doable. >> 2011 was slower than 2010 and 2012 will be slower than 2011, and we're starting at what just over 2%. i think it's horrible. i was trying with him but he just, i give up. there was five points he just gave me. he's right. you have to take the ball because i've thrown everything in a handout. he totally convinced me. i'm not even arguing. >> you were on the other side of this before. >> initially when i was trying to nail h

. governor romney cutting the deficit with women in half in that state. his favorability in colorado has apparently flipped. if this whole thing comes down to colorado, will you guys have the turnout necessary to hold off a romney surge? >> yeah. you know, i don't believe this is going to come down to any one state. there are seven to nine states that are critical that are imbalanced, truly up for grabs. those poll numbers in the head-to-head contest don't surprise us. we said this would be a razor-thin, close election. i can tell you when we were on the ground and speak to women who understand what mitt romney has proposed in terms of politicians getting between their doctors and their tough decisions, we talk to young folks in that state. they are for president obama because they know he's got a vision for the future. both colorado and florida we are doing incredibly well getting out our vote early. >> patrick, thank you so much. we should note we will hear from your republican counterpart next hour. thank you, sir. >> thank you, craig. >> we are keeping a close eye on hurricane sandy
deficits when they propose $7 trillion in new spending between tax cuts for the well think and the pentagon spending for which they have no plan to pay. so saying you have a plan for the future doesn't mean you do. what he has is the one-point plan the president has been talking about, which is the same plan that got us into this mess in the first place. >> the main argument they're making, he did it in his opening remarks in the last debate and the closing remarks, is that more people are unemployed, more people are on foot stamps, more people are in poverty right now than they were four years ago, why re-elect a president who has a dismal record they say like this. >> the reason they're behind in this race, wolf, is because that's been their mantra from the beginning. everybody in this country knows where we were when this president took office and understands that we're in a better place now. we have more work to do. but the last thing we need to do is go back to the tax cuts for the well think, deregulating wall street, taking care of folks at the top. abandoning the middle class. that
of sequestration and congress couldn't get act together to figure out how to reduce the deficit. automatic cuts went in affect . governor romney got a lot of questions about fema because he said in the past he would cut some aspects of fem a. dana weighed in on this. >> remember, governor mitt romney was governor of massachusetts and knows how the federal and state relationship works. there is no one in washington who could look at the program and say there couldn't be improvements and see how we can get money to the people faster. in fact, president obama himself said that today. he instructed the federal government no red tape or bureaucracy. it is preposterous to try to hang that on mitt romney. one of the first things he said. people who donated to his campaign. we don't need your resoues at this moment. give to the red cross or check on your neighbors . where do they start being political. on saturday the federal government put out a statement about the storm, it uses campaign language lean forward which happens to be a competitive net word. i could not believe that someone in the white ho
. that's crazy. but because we've got such a gigantic deficit right now, peter, you're exactly right. if the congress says okay, let's put more money in the 'til for fema, that money is probable lea going to be borrowed from china. >> peter: also, people sign up and they pay for flood insurance program and so they pay premiums and it should be paid. but there is a cost. >> gretchen: yeah. i think most americans don't mind paying taxes if it's going to help these devastated people. they might want to crack down on waste that we're in the government first. >> peter: that's absolutely right. >> gretchen: so when the president went to new jersey yesterday, he flew over point pleasant, one of the most devastated regions in new jersey with governor christie. somebody else had something else in mind. apparently they're not a president obama fan. because in all the sand that washed up, somebody put letters r, o, m, n, e, y. >> steve: why? because they love him. we have gotten some cables labeled secret that shows that about less than a month before the assault on our consulate in benghazi, a
. it is the deficit, it is the debt. on all of those issues governor romney does enjoy a lead. so i think you combine that with the intensity gap. i think governor romney has momentum still. martha: it will was fascinating night. we'll talk to you before then. then i want to get your actual picks on the record. >> dangerous. martha: thanks to you for that, doug. bill: we like dangerous. martha: yeah, you bet. bill: there are brand new details on top secret communication showing exactly how much the white house knew about the security matter in benghazi, libya. we'll show that to you. details on that. a sloggy slog getting the city back on its feet. we're back to lower manhattan for the latest martha: we're just getting a look at connecticut that the is still reeling, that city, that state i should say, from sandy. nearly 400,000 homes and businesses remain without power. the superstorm's wind toppled trees and power lines. there is new london, connecticut on the screen. the state's largest electric company says the state will have power by tuesday. they have a long way to go. governor dan malloy is s
he focused on obamacare which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half. then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate, down to 5.2% right now. today we learned it actually is.9%. that is nine million jobs what short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. unemployment is higher today than on the day barack obama took office. [booing]. he promised to propose a plan to save social security and medicare from insolvency. he didn't. rather than he raided $716 billion from medicare to pay for his vaunted obamacare. [booing] he said he would lower health insurance premiums for the average family. by $2500 a year by now. actually by now they are now 3,000 higher for an average family. and gasoline, the american family now pays $2,000 a year more for gasoline than when he was elected. of course he also said he would work across the aisle. the most important issues. listen to this. he has not met on the economy or on the budget or on jobs with either of the republican leader of
the federal deficit in half and then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today we learn that it's 7.9% and that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. >> joe biden responded to romney this way today. >> called it territorial tax. it's the bain way. it means if you're going to build a factory you go find -- this is the fact. you go find a currentory with the lowest tax rate and the cheapest wages. build it there, pay those taxes and you never have to pay a penny in tax in the profit you make when you bring them back home. why would anybody build -- why would anybody build a factory here? ladies and gentlemen, the experts point out, that new territorial tax will create 800,000 jobs. all of them abroad. i'm not making up, all of them abroad. 800,000. i found it fascinating at their convention when governor romney said the first thing i will do when i'm elected president, i will take a jobs tour. it's going to have to be a foreign trip. >> joining me now ezra klein and eugene robinson. it was a strong week for the conspiracy theoryists
to the economy. he said he would cut the deficit in half by the end of the first term and unemployment rate would be 5.2 and yet we have 23 million people unemployed despite the fact that 175,000 jobs were added. economt say it is slow. what is your message to voters who are frustrated to the record. >> the message is, the president came in the wort economic recession and thirty-three 32 straight months of private sector job growth and we know we are move nothing the right direction and needs to goer. the president has a better plan and vision for the middle class. >> and regarding libya. a number of congressam leaders are upset by the white house continuing to ignore the request for information and on the libya attack that kill would four americans and charging there is a cover up under way. does the president owe the american people a full accounting of what he knew before election day. >> the president is clear and our record shows this as information as become available we made it available to the american people. this is a tragedy but this is not time for politicalizing a tragedy. this is a
on with the broken promises not just on the economy but on the deficit and on social security and medicare. >> and the president's bigger promise to unit us instead of dividing us. governor romney has a history of working with the other party in massachusetts and history of job creation. >> mitt romney is good at sending jobs away from america. governor, i got news for you. a president's job is to create jobs in america. for americans. with americans. bringing jobs home to americans. that is a president's job. you're not running for ceo of bain. >> the president's campaign slogan is forward. but the 23 million americans failing to find a good job feel a lot more like backward. >> the fact of the matter is that buf governor romney's ecoc policies are reverting back to the same policies that i inherited and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. >> despite all that he inherited president obama did not repair the economy and save medicare and social security and tame the spending and borrowing. did he not reach across the ail to bring us together. what he inherited wasn't the o
-0 deficit and history would have to be made if the tigers want to win a championship. dave briggs is live at comerica park with a look back. is that the game ball. >> here is the thing, desperate times call for desperate measures and the tigers are turning to me to pitch game four. >> oh, no! >> i'm on the mound. >> hang on, is hell freezing over? >> i'm just getting loose and going to make the start instead of max sherzer in game four, this series is all, but over, now the tigers are the first team since 1966 to go down shut out twice in a row in the world series, the orioles shut out the dodgers back-to-back games in '66. let's show what you happened last night. top two, really all the offense. this san francisco giants team would need. and it came here, a triple from gregger blanco and he might be the mvp in the series, terrific in left field and comes through with another clutch hit there and 1-zip giants. later on in the inning, blanco would trot home on a crawford single and go up two. that ball misplayed like so many others for the tigers team through this three game series. the bi
. the only way to pay for it according to every expert in the country is increasing the deficit or raising taxes on the middle class and that's a real difference, and a real difference to the people of iowa who on average middle class families pay $3600 less in taxes as a result of the president's policies. but as we said earlier today, we didn't get their endorsement in the democratic primary in 2008, but we managed to soldier on. we'll soldier on here. we're confident we are going to win iowa. >> what about pennsylvania because democrats have been saying that it's solid, that they don't pay attention to polls showing that it's more in play, but now $2 million from restore our future from the super pac for mitt romney being invested into pennsylvania. is pennsylvania in play? >> i think that the romney campaign is trying to put it in play. they can't figure out how to get to 270 electoral votes they're losing in ohio. we are tied in florida and our ground game is turning out. they can't win without one of the states. they're trying to expand the map. they're going to be unsuccessful in do
on the impact of sandy on america's discussion about our debt and deficit. the latest hard numbers show over 8 million people are still without electricity across 18 states as we speak. many of those states densely populated in the united states. while this was a freak storm, it's demonstrated that when our outdated power grid is tested, it fails. now, of course, we cannot control such things as the weather, so let's focus on what we can control. how we can improve our infrastructure like our power grid. to me this storm and the massive power failure should be a clarion call to address our antiquated grid to better withstand such uncontrollable events and to do this, once again, it comes down to reining in the fast growing $16 trillion debt the united states is currently saddled with. that total growing by more than $1 trillion over year. that kind of burden on america, there is little wiggle room for unforeseen events such as hurricane sandy. and think about this. we managed to accumulate this debt and run an annual $1 trillion
for debt and deficits, health care, energy, any day we're talking about something else, that's good for obama, and so i will be surprised if he doesn't make a little bit of a comeback here. he's had a prett pretty solid mt for a month. there wasn't anything happehe m. what may stop it is this storm and not so much that the president will do a great job, although i don't have any doubt that he will. mostly what happens right after a terrible storm is we know where i come from, it's the local first responders. it's the firemen, the policeman, the highway patrolmen, the national guardsmen, the mayors, the governors, but the federal government has a role to play, a bigger role down the road, but the biggest thing is changing the subject is great for obama. he's been trying to change the subject all year. >> greta: let's talk about timing. if he changes the subject, for instance, monday night, if everyone is done early voting, doesn't matter if he changes the subject. we're a week out and the subject is being changed a week out. there's a lot of early voting going on. i'm curious if ther
to fiscal sustainability. the deficit reduction we need in the long run is to stablize the nation's debt load. what we need to do is very clear. that is the good news. the bad news is we have to execute on that. that will be difficult. that's why i think over the next three to six months as we work through these issues the numbers could be softer than we are experiencing now. businesses are going to be very concerned and worried about what is going to happen. >> i want to talk quickly about sandy. you made your estimate i think as the one being quoted the most about $50 billion. what about the impact on the national economy? >> you know, it's going to affect the monthly data so vehicle sales were soft. we already saw that because of the effects of the last few days of october. but by the end of the year certainly by spring this will all iron out. i don't think bottom line sandy is going to have a big impact on the national economy. it's not a game changer at any time. >> all right. mark zandi of moody's analytics the man we always turn to on these fridays. we're going to keep following t
and demonizing. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half he's doubled it. he said he would focus on jobs, instead focused on obamacare that kills jobs, he said he'd bring health insurance down $2500 a year, the cost of it for the average family. anybody here had their insurance go down 2500? as a matter of fact the average is up $3,000 per family. look, the president said that he would work across the aisle. he would meet regularly with leaders in the republican party. do you know how long it's been since he's met with the republican leader he of the house or the senate on jobs, or the teconomy or the deficit? since july, he hasn't met with them. he just has not been able to deliver on the promises he's made. talk is cheap, a record is real and takes hard work and he's not been able to accomplish it and i have a record of accomplishment and that's why i'm running. (cheers) >> as you know, i started a business, i actually helped turn around another business and help turn around the olympics and you may have heard that i was governor next door in massachusetts. massachusetts in uple of my
